Everything is finally packed up, and your new NYC apartment is ready to receive its excited new inhabitants. But there's still the actual move to do. You've hired a reptable New York moving company, but how will the moving day go down?

• Your movers should let you know when the moving crew will show up. If not, call them several days before the move. When they arrive, the driver/van operator is often the supervisor of the crew and the primary person you will deal with.

• Your NY moving company will prepare a written inventory of your goods, assessing each item's current condition and assigning it a number. Check the inventory carefully -- its purpose is to ensure that all of your boxes and belongings arrive at your destination in the same condition in which they started. Your signature indicates your agreement with the inventory and the condition.

The movers start loading the moving van. Professional New York moving companies have a systematic process of loading your furniture and other items, and they load the truck from floor to roof like placing pieces in a puzzle. In order to prevent load shifting, they will fill every space so that your stuff is loaded tight.

Don't worry if your stuff appears to be mixed up on the truck; it's done this way to get a tight fit in the van. You will tell the NY movers exactly where you want each piece placed once it gets to your new residence.

• Let the movers do their thing and stay out of the way. That's why you hired them, right?

• Once everything is loaded, the driver gives you the bill of lading, which lays out of the conditions of your move, your estimate and the expected delivery dates. Make sure you're satisfied before signing! You will sign the bill of lading again when you receive your items at your new home.

• Reconfirm all contact information so that you can get in touch on the road.
